well personally notepaddoes the job for a lot of languages : HTML, cpp, even python. Induvidually I like TurboC for cpp and python ; auto indenting comes in handy.
Emacs and vi when working on linux..

Guys I see such alien names over here and it scares me . I would like to start coding/web designing also I aim to be a game designer . So I want to know what all softwares to use ?

I mean for not for graphics but on the coding part .

Right now I've thought of

C C++ C#

Dreamweaver cos I heard its used to make websites ?

Python

xHTML

PHP <-- I don't even know what it means and what it does . I just read somewhere its used .

And a few more I read . Now I do plan to master these currently I know Java and C++ basics . But my Sem1 book sucks . Its Computer Programming by Balguruswami and it sucks really really bad man . So please could someone tell me which book to read to start with C and C++ ?
